Text Solution

What is known?

Price of the TV \(= \rm{Rs}\, 13,000\)

Sales tax on the TV \(= 12\%\)

What is Unknown?

 Amount Vinod will have to pay if he buys the TV

Reasoning:

Amount Vinod has to pay to buy \(= 13,000 + 12\%\) of \(13,000\)

Steps:

Sales Tax Amount

 \(\begin{align}= \frac{{{12}}}{{{100}}} \times{13000} = \rm{Rs}\, 1560\end{align}\)

Amount Vinod has to pay to buy \(= 13,000 + 1560 = \rm{Rs}\, 14,560\)
